Writing Coach


Looking for a writing coach? I work with writers in every genre.

I love writing, and I love teaching and coaching writers. I’m here to help you make your writing as powerful — and beautiful — as you would like it to be.

I’ve been teaching writing classes for 25 years, and I’ve been a professional writer for over 30.  I have a BA in Literature from Yale University and was awarded an Andrew D. White Fellowship in Comparative Literature by Cornell University.

For many years, I have also been a book critic, for publications ranging from the New York Times Book Review to The Nation, Salon, Kirkus, and the Village Voice. I’ve served as a judge for three book awards.

Students tell me my teaching is as gentle as it is effective, and I like working with everyone from beginners to very published authors. I am happy to work with you to create a plan that meets your budget and your needs.
